Control Systems

Accurate product monitoring, regulation directives, and operational efficiencies continue to be ever increasingly important to manage the business from billing to inventory control and reporting.

To ensure operational efficiencies and optimum usage of the product, it is imperative to have the latest technology in the form of a control
system and data logger; and, ones that are operator friendly.

The Tread line of controls systems, having varying levels of sophistication, will provide a stream
of capabilities that are matched to your company’s requirements.

Designed to be simple, easily operated, and extremely accurate. Provides the greatest level of functionality and expansion capability available for the explosive industry.

  • Monitoring of production rates, blend ratios, hole totals, and job totals.
  • Multiple control stations with display screens, joysticks, and touch controls for the selection of all formulas and functions.
  • Built-in self-diagnostic capabilities that will locate and identify errors in the unlikely event a problem occurs
  • Each component has a separate PID loop. Component control is precise and repeatable.
  • Define your own formulas ahead of time to ensure product consistency; and, have the ability to have proBlast adjust gassing rates based upon product temperature.
